Really liked my job at Seasalt (most of the time) Some customers were nice and some were NOT! But you have that with all stores. Management was up and down especially with area managers which kept changing. Didn’t always feel appreciated at my store and got put down a lot for not getting customer data. I thought selling the clothes was more important but Seasalt seem to want to post brochures through customer doors more. Don’t think I would work there again.
Pay (no age gap pay)
Rather get a postcode than sell clothes
Seasalt’s foundations are rooted in admirable ethics. A family run business that has in expansion managed to keep hold of that family feel. Products to be proud of, makes the job easy, especially with such a fabulous bunch of people to work with. You’ll never have felt as much of a part of a team as here!
Great clothes. Super people
Targets can get you down (if you let them)
Seasalt seem to convince their sales advisors that they are working for the best company in the country, so therefore they put in extra time for nothing. There are no bonuses, instead you feel that if you don't jump through hoops you are not trying hard enough. I was not allowed on the till for the first month, so I always felt stupid when I had to serve someone and had to ask for help. There are no breaks, you have to constantly roam the shop tweaking clothes. There was an air of fear about not being the best shop , as it was VERY competitive. And the company cares more about profits than they care to admit.
not caring about the little people
Had a great time working for Seasalt. Company take real care of their workers. Instructions was eassy to follow, break times really well designed. Every single worker knows what they must do and the best part is, when someone has a hard time finding the answer or figuring a problem, you just go and ask managers, they will happily help you.
I really enjoyed working for Seasalt and have made some life long friends from my time with the company. There's always something interesting to do and managers support and try to help you to the best that they can. Everyone I met and worked alongside was helpful and a joy to work with, no matter the position they held within the company.
Focused on developing people.
Pay is lower than most other competitors.
For being such an ethnically driver company they are still the same as every company worried about numbers and money rather than employees welfare. They don’t want to deal with mental health and still have stigma attached to it. There are also certain members allowed to bully openly because of their senior status in buying roles.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Seasalt is a lovely company itself. Unfortunately there's not enough hours to work to afford to live on let alone the pay is low especially for a Supervisor role. The team were lovely and very friendly. I had a great laugh with them all as well as getting to know the company. My only negative response is unfortunately down to training. Within the role I felt the training wasn't strong enough for example I had three former managements (Store Manger, Assistant Manager and another Supervisor) training me all in their own ways which I felt wasn't helpful and got very confusing and wrong most of the times. I do feel that they should come up with a buddy up system and be trained on by one management which should be the manager herself then that way they'll see what your progressing or need further training on and also have the ability to progress within your role. Like I mentioned it is a lovely friendly company to work for but it is down to training unfortunately which is what made me really struggle within my progression. It is a shame because I do like this company and the team.
Good uniform choice
not enough hours and low pay
There is a great team at head office. They are very in tune with what's going on. The clothes are stunning and you get free clothes every month. My wardrobe has had a much needed boost. I worked with many managers at Seasalt. On the whole they are good eggs. Customers always comment on how much lovely stuff there is. It's getting more corporate and structured at the moment which means flexibility is key. They have been flexible around childcare. They don't pay a fortune but it's essentially a job in retail. I love it.
Great products and friendly team. Very poor communication between HO and shops. Was hired for a new store, this was delayed so worked elsewhere for a few months and, only when I asked for a update on the new store, was I told it was not going ahead yet and I was made redundant - they’d forgotten I was there, and why hire me if the building was not ready to be furnished?!
Great for parttime work (i.e as a job alongside studies or a summer job) but perhaps a bit 'too much' as a full-time job; given the location/constant busyness of the shop, the feeling of being overworked is not uncommon. Generous uniform allowance and discount, plus some lovely customers!
